        I was waiting for someone to complain about this.  Now that CCs are
    sorted, this needs to be looked at next.

        Please open a feature request and copy your message into it.

        Should be able to get this done for 20.12.


I agree that this feature makes no sense as a default and that a change is long overdue! I also like the suggestion of making it a (very visible) option.  If I'm not stating the obvious it might be useful to know why this 'feature' came about in the first place.  I was using a lot of VST instruments and soft synths for testing at the time and of course these wouldn't save their own state so this default was a workaround for that behaviour and probably always should have been an option... I think the role of the DAW has also changed a bit in the intervening years, rather than aiming always to use it as a single point of truth, a lot of connected equipment now has opinions and connectivity, plain and simple, is more important than anything else. This also makes me wonder again about JACK midi of course but that's another story :)

Thanks, that's a very interesting angle.

Maybe one thing I overlooked in my original email and in the feature request is that (of course), Rosegarden _should_ also transmit those when a file is opened! I guess that would cover that scenario?
